Urban transport pollution is an increasing health issue and contributes significantly to global climate change, the biggest environmental challenge of the 21st century. Major cities in China are challenged to manage the escalating numbers of new cars on the road each month. Urban environments require sustainable transport solutions that both reduce pollution (air & noise), support livable environments and promote healthy activities.
Biking is a healthy, non-polluting, trendy and practical option of urban transport that contributes to sustainable, healthy urban environments. Therefore we need local governments and businesses to support the move towards biking centric cities.
Be the change and join this year’s critical mass bike ride on April 20, 2014 . Get your family, friends and colleagues involved as well to have fun, cycle across the city and raise awareness about pollution and healthy living.
Raising funds for “Farm in a Box” to grow healthy and nutritious food for orphans in residence.
